Brookfield's not doing anything with that site now, they're rethinking what to do after the zoning change.
I would put good money on the Brookfield site, the only site truly ready to go and if they had Goldman as a tenant they drop the residentil portion and shift it to another site, anything to get a tenant of that caliber

As far as Lower Manhattan not having many development sites, well that’s true, but people always forget about this packaged one, ready to go once a tenant is found. Gehry was at one time rumored to be the architect; the current design is by KPF.
4 Hudson Square
Varick Street, Spring Street, Hudson Street and Vandam Street's
1,315,946 Sq. Ft.
The design is too plain. It has architectural neighbors to catch up to now.
Hudson Square leasing has slowed, this one wont happen anytime soon
With this new development Hudson Square might just become the next up and coming neighborhood.

Trinity Church Names Planner to Oversee Realty Operations
By CHARLES V. BAGLI
Carl Weisbrod, an urban planner and a lawyer active in the redevelopment of Times Square and Lower Manhattan over the last 25 years, is taking over real estate operations for Trinity Church, one of the largest property owners in New York City.
Staring in July, Mr. Weisbrod will oversee leasing and development of the church's six million square feet of commercial and retail space in 18 buildings, most of it in the Hudson Square neighborhood, west of SoHo and south of Greenwich Village.
Mr. Weisbrod, 60, said he would also explore opportunities to develop office towers, retail space, and possibly residential buildings in the neighborhood surrounding the Holland Tunnel. At the same time, he said, he and Trinity will push for the creation of a business improvement district in Hudson Square.
Since the late 1990's, Trinity has moved to transform the old factory buildings it owns, many of which were commercial printing companies, into office buildings, replacing ink-stained printers with white-collar executives.
"We're really looking at full development of that area as it might relate to retail, residential and commercial, as well as other aspects of community life," said the Rev. James H. Cooper, rector of Trinity Church-St. Paul's Chapel. "We're looking for Carl to help us discern what would be best for Trinity and for New York City as we go forward."
Mr. Weisbrod will step down as president of the Alliance for Downtown New York, a job he has held since the group's founding a decade ago. However, both he and Mr. Cooper said that Mr. Weisbrod would not lose his connection to and interest in the rebuilding of Lower Manhattan. A 308-year-old parish based downtown, Trinity attracts 1.8 million visitors a year, and has been involved in the rebuilding effort.
Mr. Weisbrod said, "It provides me with the opportunity to help create a fabulous New York City neighborhood around Hudson Square for a distinguished New York institution that is really interested in making a positive contribution to the city generally, and to my continuing work in Lower Manhattan."
Robert R. Douglass, chairman of the Alliance for Downtown New York, said he would be sorry to see Mr. Weisbrod move to Trinity but would ask members to give the former chairman a seat on the group's board.
Trinity Church originally owned a large swath of Manhattan under a 1705 land grant from Queen Anne of England. By the early 1900's, it had disposed of much of the land, by either selling it or giving it to Columbia University. During the Depression, Trinity ended up with the factory buildings in and around Hudson Square after it had leased some of the land to developers who built the factories. When the economy collapsed and developers defaulted on their loans, the church took control of the buildings.
After some of the factory tenants failed in the 1980's, Trinity began to try to gentrify the neighborhood. That did not pick up momentum until the real estate boom in the late 1990's.
Witkoff Group Hotel
WEST SIDE GLORY
By JENNIFER GOULD KEIL
"Steve Witkoff, of the Witkoff Group, is one buyer interested in the Imperatore family's holdings. He bought about 1 million square feet — for about $120 per buildable square foot — from a partnership controlled by the Imperatore family.
Sources say he has begun the design phase for a 1,000 room hotel that would be directly across from the Javits Center."

Baruch College Atrium & Addition
Lexington and 23rd Street
G TECTS/Frank Gehry
The Architect's Newspaper
ANOTHER CHANCE FOR BARUCH
We all but gave up on Baruch College when it built the bloated, beached whale between East 24th and 25th streets that it refers to as its Vertical Campus, designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox. But now we hear that a new, more promising master plan is in the works by Gordon Kipping, the G TECTS principal who collaborated with Frank Gehry on Issey Miyake’s Tribeca store. We’re told Kipping’s proposal, which would involve Gehry in some yet-to-be-determined way, includes inserting a new 17-plus-story atrium in the central bay of the college’s 1929 building at Lexington and 23rd. That atrium would face the street in the form of a glass wedge housing a dramatic spiraling column of stairs that twists as the glazing tapers. In addition, a new through-block structure would connect the building with KPF’s monstrosity while, hopefully, also blocking out one’s view of it. If all goes well, construction could begin in 2007.
Yeah, and, viewed from the ESB, I've always appreciated its notable contrast with the surrounding ocean of brick midrises.
